delaware valley. but storm scan3 does show some more activities developing and just to the south across southern delaware you can see a batch of showers developing there. those are headed northeast ward. so that will eventually and pact central northern delaware and southern new jersey through the overnight into early sunday morning. out to the west another area of energy spawning some showers but it's kind of breaking up a little bit but some of that energy could get into our area later tomorrow afternoon. two separate areas that keep a threat for scattered showers maybe even a thunderstorm in our forecast. but don't cancel the outdoor plans. i think most the time we should stay on the dry side for sunday. 69 degrees at the airport right now. low 70s in wilmington and the capital city of delaware. 65 up in mount peck know. a lot of cooler air in place across northeast area and the mid atlantic because of the clouds and the showers around so expect temperatures to stay below average through the rest of the weekend. and again the key thing in the forecast that front off our

category one hurricane. later this week on tuesday or wednesday or so but again it's well offshore. could bring some higher surf into the area beaches. that's pretty much about it. back home, though, tracking some showers overnight. especially south and east of the city. there could be a period of instead your rains specially at the jersey shore very early sunday morning. things should dry out into the afternoon but still there could be scattered shower or two in some spots few peeks of sunshine looking better sunday night. monday a whole lot better mostly sunny conditions there could be a stray shower that does pop up especially to the east of the city. but here's your forecast on the muggy side overnight. slight chance for showers south of the city those increase the chances increase a little bit early sunday morning especially across the jersey shore. skies pretty much mostly cloudy through the day we get up to 81 degrees for the high temperature. again, at the shore your best shot for the rain will be during the morning hours. it's humid not whole lot of sunshine. air temperatures 78 degrees. ocean water chilly at 68.
